I looked up Easy To Slip on a Little Feat show base and the shows it was played can be found by typing in the song title Many of the shows SBD and Auds can be downloaded off the Internet Archive.:

Here is one I found that can be streamed. I don't think the Feat played it live while Lowell was alive. He considered it commercial and indeed the song was written in an attempt to write a radio-friendly "hit" song. Love the song though, both the Feat's versions and Bobby's.

Easy To Slip>I Know You Rider>Easy To Slip. Would have been a good combo for the Dead to have done:

Check out the "Dark Star" tease before Dixie Chicken which goes in and out of Tennessee Jed on this show too. I saw the Feat the last time in 2003 and they used to do these a lot.

As a side note please send out your healing prayers for the Feats drummer Richie Hayward who is very ill and uninsured. The band has been doing benefits to help Richie out.
Here is Jorma Kaukonen sitting in with the Feat on 8/22/09:

Very sad to hear about Richie It was mentioned to me not long ago of his condition, Every Human on earth deserves the best healthcare available regardless of money.(my opinion and its not up for debate) My Prayers are w/ him

Thank you SkyDawg for clearing up my search for a live East To Slip, Looked high and low and had decided a) Lowell hated the song and never preformed it or b) the selection of shows available @ LMA or etree during his years in the band didn't really reflect all the live material he presented.
I love the thought of the Dead covering that song, and your right about nestling Rider between the song and a reprise IF ONLY. Will defieatly enjoy the info sent my way Thanx Agian
